You make my heart sing... 39

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, September 24, 2013 @ 9:55 AM | , , , , ,

 Hi there! I hope you are having a great week so far! Today I have a layout to share that I made just for fun featuring a photo of my sweet little four legged furry friend ~ Gretchen :)
I white washed the background with Gesso then added design using various colors of paint along with the Petal Pattern stencil. I stamped the BINGO card using Document It - Bingo and adhered a trio of die cut hearts made using Die-namics Hearts a Plenty:
I added various flowers from my stash ~ some of which are several years old! For added contrast, I adhered a few die cut black licorice leaves made using Die-namics Royal Leaves.
 For color and tidbits, I joined along with the CSI90 challenge:
The Scheme: Use all 5 colors ~ done
The Evidence: Use at least 2 clues
Hearts, Tie something, Polka Dots
The Testimony: Journal about a pet / 5 Fun Facts
I journaled about my girl Gretchen while including 5 facts :)

For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the October Sketchbook365 challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting!
Be Sweet ;)
